I have found instructions for modifying grid (the grid that components snap to) settings/dimensions in other apps such as Draw and Writer, but have yet to find the solutions for this in Base. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Since Base forms are essentially writer documents, the grid is from there. However, the form portion seems to be buggy.

The actual size of the grid seems to work fine - that is the Horizontal and Vertical Resolution. What does not appear to work is the Subdivision (spacing within). Regardless of what is set and works in Writer for the spacing, Base only has 5 vertical and horizontal movements within each grid square. This is even contrary to the 6 spaces which appear there.

You should file a bug report on this here -> Bugzilla.
